Available at our Desert Ridge location, massage therapy is an extremely beneficial complementary therapy to physical therapy. At OSR Physical Therapy, our experienced Licensed Massage Therapists (LMT) offer several types of massage, including: Swedish, deep tissue, sports, medical, pre-natal (2nd & 3rd trimesters), and Hawaiian Lomi.
Massage therapy has many health benefits. For those patients with a specific condition like fibromyalgia, back pain, or arthritis, massage can help with pain relief, relaxation, and sleep issues. Deep massage techniques can be used to target the deeper layers or muscle and connective tissue to address muscle pain and damage. Sports massage can be used by patients to both prevent injuries and address pain from a previous injury.
Regardless of the type, massage has been shown to alleviate stress, pain, and muscle tension in addition to providing general feelings of wellbeing and relaxation.
